Chracter Introduction:

Galvatron was a reformat of Megatron badder and deadlier. Now under the influence of Unicron he has been ordered to destroy the matrix of leadership, but unfortunately those who have seen the movie countless times know the story.





Vehicle mode:

Transforms from a space laser cannon and back. Try watching Starscream's death scene you'll get the idea how powerful he is. Now repainted to its animation colors the laser cannon is a huge puple space gun, but I leave the others to comment if the color has done justice for this toy.

Transformation:

Pull the legs... Rotate the waist... fold the arms and reveal the hands as you slide the head, and attach the arm cannon with the nozzle to bring this bad boy to life. Ratchet joints sound good in his body as I transform him. Reminds me the first time I had the original version almost nineteen or eighteen years ago from this month.





Robot Mode:

His eyes are red and the face has been re-sculpted. The chest which holds the batteries has chrome paint applications of the little squares as well as his knees. His face is lighter gray same with his legs and some parts of his arm. Simply nostalgic in design with the modern feel to it.





Toy Gimmick:

His gimmick has been upgraded from three different laser sound settings to having three new options. Like he can say five movie phrases in japanese, transformation sound, and the laser sound. He used to have a 9 volt battery as his power output, but now he carries two tripple A batterries, since the upgrade to deliver those nasty lines against the Cybertron army. In cannon mode he lights up as well as in robot mode with the red eyes, which was originally orange in color.









Packaging:

Retains his original G1 packaging with slight upgrade with Guildo Guidi's artwork replacing the original japanese art. Plus they use the Scramble City art instead of the one used on the Toy Movie released figures.





Overall Rating:

The light purple color has ruined it. I can't say what's good or bad about the color, but others might say its positive or negative. Depends on what you guys think from your point of view. Personally to me he's just good and that's what all I can say about it.

Galvatron gets 7/10 robot points.
